The Business Achievement Award (BAA) program recognizes members with a certificate and a lapel pin. The winners will also be recognized at the local chapter award program in May.
Sheila Yarbrough, adviser and business teacher, said the students continue to impress her by their work ethic. "These students are the ones who go above and beyond the classroom expectations to accomplish their goals and to make better opportunities for their careers," she said.
